This was just an outstanding fun weekend, and the only time I’ve seen Santana. It was a hoot to have Carlos join the band to close the first set each night, and they hadn’t played Schoolgirl since 9/19/70. The second night has some great moments too:

Hey man, you're right this is really good sounding recording. I know I'm not supposed to like 1987 lest the gods of the forum get angry and condemn me to "Touch head" status or some such non-sense. I'm going to dive in head first and say that I absolutely love Tons of Steel. By the way I think this the finest version of Touch of Grey. While it's not as good as the 50th best version of the Other One it still rocks. I even like the Little Red Rooster on this one. It is a very even mix and I can even hear the separation of the drummers. Which often times isn't the case.

But, I dig this particular year and this show because the energy levels are very high and the playing is very tight. Sure, there aren't really any of the super long jams of previous years and sometimes I just don't have the stamina for a 40 minute Dark Star. But I see 87 in the same way I view 1971, a year of transition. Thanks for reminding me why I like 1987. Rock on bro. The way I see it is this, I like what I like and don't feel the need to justify my tastes to anyone. But yes, this is a sweet tasty little nugget of joy much like a praline.

Pretty good, but it's a little light on the bass. Check out the 93 Cap Centre transfers.

Light on the bass? No, sorry, but you are mistaken, or you don't have the right equipment to listen to this. There is some booming 60Hz from Phil and some dangerous 30Hz or so subsonic thunder that comes alive with a good sound system. Me thinks is may be time for you to to upgrade the old speakers and amp...

It's funny how everyone's perception here depends on what they are listening on, or the format that is listened too on.
Go for the gusto is my new motto with speaker or headphone amplification and transfer rate nowadays.

Trust me. I will keep looking. You give me one, I'll give you one, if that's how you want to play.
